Filter Web Template: Start value in hierarchy pop-up

I am designing a web template where the user has a Navigation Box connected to a Organizational hierarchy. When the user clicks FILTER, a new popup is displayed, but in this popup the user has to start from the top of the hierarchy and navigate way down.

I want to make this filter so that the users starts at a lower hierarchy node which is more relevant for them. How do I pass this information to the filtering pop-up so that it does not start from the very top of the hierarchy?

Best Regards

    Hi,

    As i understand you want to see the hierarchy available in the lower part of the screen which is more of concern for the user.

    When entering a selection option you have various options for assigning a variable values:

    − Define a single value

    a. From the dropdown box select the operator =, and enter the value in the first input field. This corresponds to entering a single value (see below).

    b. Do not change the Include setting.

    c. To enter more than one single value, choose New Row. A new input row appears.

    Select the hierarhcy from the lower part to higher part so that you can see the Lower hierarchy in the top.

    Assign points if this helps

    Maybe I was not to clear about what I intend to do. I want to use a standard Generic Navigation Box (a drop down box wouldn't be usable since it is i long hierarchy) and modify the FILTER setting of this so that when the user clicks on filter for a characteristic that is a hierarchy, the pop-up which the user can select the node to filter on, does not start with the ROOT NODE, but starts on a node that I have specified.

    Is it possible to improve the start position of the standard filter dialog for a hierarchy characteristic?
